12/01/2005: Happy 88th birthday wishes go out to.....
Former St. Louis Cardinals/Browns all-star shortstop (and St. Louis Browns/Chicago White Sox manager) Marty "The Octopus" Marion.
Yes, I know, his canonical nickname is "Slats", but Baseball Reference lists "The Octopus" as another of his nicknames, and that sounds cooler today. Live with it.
